Laboratorio Cristalitos - Narcoturismo

From Bologna in northern Italy these three guys contaminating the world with their down-tempo death, spiced with lyrics about drugs and war. The first contact with the vocalist is when he shouts out ´Narcoturismo´ in the title track. I think it was about the same time I lost all hope for this album. Imagine the word, with a high pitch on the i. Hilarious. The guitar and bass plays together with simple punkriffs, and where they try to speed things up to a mid-tempo pace, it´s just damn slow anyway. Which might be a good thing, since the drumming is painful to listen to in the "fast" parts. Sometimes, like in the chorus of ´Plancolombia´ it gets quite groovy. And the choruses are, in all their simplicity, the only fine moments in this album, where the songtitles are sung repeatedly. A typical first album, and mistakes must be made to learn from. To rap this up and as an advice to Laboratorio Cristalitos: Repetitio est mater studiorum!
